[Rex Whistler]


A cast of creatives of the 1930s cast their minds back to their childhoods and recall treasured anecdotes and memories. The interest comes in comparing these youthful recollections with the eventual lives of the recaller. Writers include Ethel Smyth, Lord Berners, Harold Nicolson, Dorothy Wellesley, Sylvia Pankhurst, Rose Macaulay, Robert Byron, Nina Hamnett, John Betjeman, Evelyn Waugh, Vita Sackville-West, Brian Howard and many more. Rex Whistler's pastoral idyll, populated with putti, graces the dust jacket.
